Fine Art

Ed Roth creates artwork predominantly using stencils with mixed media. Recent works on vintage canvas army tarps are shown below.

His recent body of work, titled Dolly was cloned from a mammary gland /I will always love you explores cloning literally and figuratively.

Long fascinated and horrified with the story of “Dolly” the first cloned sheep, Ed Roth’s work represents this idea of a “new” creation copied from the original. Cloning, copying, duplicating, reusing and mimicking, recycling and appropriating…… From the use of old vintage tarps to left over paint, from icon to icon, old materials and new, long outdated rules of conformity and well worn cliches to yet another set of blindly followed societal rules…..this work uses images of the cloned sheep to mirror the ways in which we follow. Roth’s current work explores themes of cloning, duality, cognitive thought,and alteration. Is there anymore original? Or simply, on a utilitarian level is the clone – the stencil – a necessity?
